Based on the interest and number of questions Derek Featherstone got during his accessibility presentation at the recent InterACT Summit, I’d say interest from educators about accessibility is very high right now. There’s a free online course from the Web Standards Project (WaSP) InterACT curriculum about accessibility. The course is a perfect resource for teachers. It’s a stand alone course. If you are teaching with InterACT with Web Standards and its chapters on accessibility, the online material a great time saver. Online materials such as exam questions, grading matrices, assignments, objectives, and resources go hand in hand with the material in the book.
Shelley Powers from Burningbird sent out a tweet this morning that IE 8.1 is going to include support for SVG. If you haven’t started paying attention to SVG yet, now is the time.
A good place to start learning about SVG is Burningbird. Shelley has been working with it on her personal sites for quite some time and has explained in numerous posts how to make it all work. The site itself is the best example, so look under the hood and kick the tires. Here are a few of Burningbird’s posts:
